What account-switcher icon?

edit: Oh, I see. This feature is not at all explained by the signup process, so you would've done well to mention it explicitly rather than saying "accounts are per character" and letting us draw our own conclusions.

Ah, sorry. I'll edit upthread. (Also, I think it should be possible to link initially-separate accounts, so that you can use this feature even if you didn't set the accounts up that way initially.)

Kappa, do you intend Leaf and Nifl to figure out they're from the same world ever?

I would love some advice on how to link initially-separate accounts.

DanielH, Nifl has already noticed, and it's why she's gone abruptly much quieter - she doesn't want Leaf to catch on. :D

If you click on the account-switcher icon and then scroll down slightly, there should be a link saying "Link another forum account". I haven't actually gone through this process myself, so I probably can't give much more specific guidance than that.

Looks like I can't link them because I created them both with separate ("separate") email addresses. Darn.

Okay, I managed it, and it required only moderate shenanigans (first unlink one account from its email address, then log in as the other account and link the first account to its email address). Hooray.

Edit: In case I end up making a crapton of accounts, which I'm very likely to do, it would be moderately helpful to have a wide variety of different forum themes available so I can pick different ones per account and always know who I'm logged in as. Don't sweat it if that would be a pain, though, I'll deal.

Haha, I was actually about to suggest that but you ninja'd me. Here's the instructions I was going to post, in case anyone else finds themself in a similar position.

proboards.com > Account > Account Settings > Unlink Forum Account
then log into the other account, and link from there.

I can never think of characters from non-original settings for these things :/
